Summer Reading 2022

2022 English FB cover Kids


June 1 - July 31

"Read Beyond the Beaten Path" with the library this summer!  Avoid Summer Slide while school is out by participating in the library's Reading Challenge. Children and adults of all ages can read and complete activities to earn prizes. A library card is not required to participate, but you’ll want one to check out the books you choose for your challenge!  Early registration begins May 23.

Ages 0 - 109


Record your reading progress and complete activities to reach your completion goal. Activities involve visiting the library’s StoryWalk Trail, camping with friends, having fun with your family, and more.  You can choose to log your progress either on the Beanstack Tracker website or app or a paper log which can be claimed at any of the library service desks.

If you are using the paper log, check off the minutes you’ve spent reading each day and record each of the activities you complete.  You can pick up your log when you register for the reading challenge at any of the library service desks.

If you are using the Beanstack Tracker app or website, log in to your Beanstack account (or set one up for free) and register for the age-appropriate Summer Reading Challenge 2022.


When you have completed the reading challenge, bring your paper log back to the library (if applicable). See library staff at any of the library service desks to claim your prizes.  Participants must be present to claim their prizes; children’s prizes will not be given to parents without the child present.


We have programs nearly every day at the library this summer!  Visit our website calendar or the Play Danville Brochure for a full list of free programs.
